“Crunchy outside and creamy inside, these Boondi Rolls are truly mouth drooling, flavorsome and refreshing preparation for breakfast”. The first thing that comes to mind when I open the fridge in the morning is, “How about making an exciting breakfast from it?” Trust me transforming a dish is a quite challenging task, but then I guess that’s the fun of cooking. Yesterday morning at home, we had some boondi raita that was from the night before. Somehow, the morning rush sparked my creativity and resulted in a delicious breakfast!
